If you look at our 2022 pre-season PuRPs rankings, you won’t find Colorado Rockies minor league outfielder Daniel Montaño there. He’s not on MLB Pipeline’s top 30 Rockies prospects either. The photo libraries we use for articles were bereft of his picture, and the only ones available for this article date back to 2016. If you don’t follow the Rockies farm system closely, you might not be familiar with Montaño at all.
It’s time for that to change.
Daniel Montaño signed with the Rockies as an international free agent in 2015 out of Maracay, Venezuela.
